Lewis Hamilton reveals contract talks with Mercedes HAVE begun over extension into 2022 with Brit’s deal expiring at the end of the season

Seven-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has hinted his glittering career will continue into the sport’s new era from 2022, revealing he’s begun contract talks with Mercedes. Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas isn’t pulling his weight as the No.2 driver this season, with the Fin so far dominated by Red Bull’s second car, piloted by Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez. Bottas is expected to be replaced by Williams driver George Russell during the off season but Hamilton – whose leadership of the team has never once been challenged by the Fin – would be happy to continue their partnership. ‘Valtteri is my team-mate now,’ Hamilton said, ‘and both of us have had ups and downs in our careers but he is a fantastic team-mate and I don’t necessarily see that it needs to change. Valtteri has been my best team-mate overall and when I say team-mate it’s not just driver performance, it’s about team morale and how you work in the team-mate environment.
